Time has always stood still for the Fleshtones. Old-fashioned in sound when they began playing their "super- rock" trade in New York's skankiest night clubs in 1976, the Queens group's determined mediums — singer Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng and drummer Bill Milhizer — have never stopped channeling the spirit of every great rock'n'roll party band that ever stepped to it, from the Coasters to the Kingsmen, the Raiders to the Kinks. Decades down the pike, they're still going strong, making great entrances and stylish exits and pouring it all out in uplifting sets of smart and sassy uptight bliss in between. Amazingly, Streng and Zaremba's aged-in-the-studio songwriting hasn't lost its colorful zest, which means that the group's recent albums are just as likely to prove wide- eyed and wonderful as their first blasts of serious fun. Somewhere along the way, self-conscious re-creation became subconscious reality for the Fleshtones, which makes them something of a perpetual motion machine.Blast Off dates from abortive 1978 sessions for Red Star Records and succeeds beautifully on its own limited terms. It's raw, noisy and incomplete-sounding — just right for debauchery, though unsuitable for careful listening.[Jon Young/Ira Robbins trouserpress]
